We tried a new Korean restaurant today. it was quite nice, but they said something to us we've never heard before. They said we ate too fast. At first he said, "we're open until 9pm, you didn't have to rush" then the woman said something about how it was unhealthy to eat so fast! (Her English wasn't that good.

Mostly we found this funny.

 This was one of those projects where I was attracted by a sample project in a yarn store, and got the yarn without having a recipient in mind for the final object.    I think I was also intrigued by the yarn itself, which claimed to have mink in it.   In the intervening years, it was tested for fiber content and turned out to be angora / wool / rayon instead, and has been recalled.   (Apparently a particular yarn store had it tested originally because they were getting returns from people who were allergic to angora).    Anyway, angora or mink, it does have a lovely soft feel, and I finally got around to finishing the darned thing.

(This is folded up - there are eight of the gathered/cable sections)

Octopus making continues as an overall background process, but I did take a picture of these, which Mike requested.  There's a bit of needle felting - you can see the clouds on Earthopus, but also Jupitopus has a red spot, and Plutopus has a heart, which looks a lot like a cutie mark.  :)

I got roped into teaching a taiko workshop tonight.

I had so much fun. I miss taiko. It's one of those cases where I really really loved it, but it just doesn't work any more. :( My shoulder already hates me just form the one night, and it's not the only reason.
